Now entering our fifth year of service to Morgan County, WV and surrounding areas, BlackCat Music Cooperative (BCMC) is ready to step into a new realm of youth empowerment through implementation of a more formalized mentorship program.

After our first 3 years of setting up the foundation, growing youth music programs and establishing deep roots in the community, we spent our fourth year navigating the challenges of adapting our youth music programs to the realities of a deadly pandemic. The year was filled with innovation, adaptation, and the introduction of new technical tools.

The focus of the Youth Mentorship Program is to teach creative skills in the fields of songwriting, performance, videography, visual arts, choreography and production via sessions that will incorporate workshops with an array of experienced instructors who work and teach in their relevant fields. Each session will focus on specific training and expertise development — subsequent sessions will build on new and improving skills while creating performance opportunities along the way.

These programs will begin virtually until the all-clear signal is given and we can meet safely in-person again. Unlike online videos and tutorials, these workshops will be interactive experiences offering guidance, feedback, and tailored assistance. As students progress in proficiency, some will be offered paid mentorship opportunities to assist with guiding the next new group of youth performers, writers, and producers along their creative journeys.

The Unity Campaign is a 12-day fundraiser powered by United Way of the Eastern Panhandle. During the 12 Days of Giving from April 12 - 23, donors can contribute to any of the participating agencies and 100% of their contribution will go directly to the nonprofit organization of their choice.
